I can see what you are saying about the land being sewn up for the most part, at least as far as Ebay auctions are concerned; and I can accept that
most Canadians probably don't care much for Americans, thats fine also. However the whole heavily armed bit I take issue with on grounds that you
obviously haven't taken an extra minute or two to analyze the reasons behind desiring uninhabited canadian land (and you can't tell me its not; so
much of your population is on the borders of the country) and realize that in such a remote place heavy arms would become unnecessary, the most
firepower that would be needed would be a large bore hunting rifle and perhaps a shotgun for small game and fowl hunting. Even if the land is already
owned its not like people up north are turned off to the concept of making some money by selling off a chunk of land to people who would probably pay
the whole amount up front in cold hard cash?
Say you were in the middle of a thousand acres of land just living life, the need for a semi-automatic clip fed assault weapon would be non-existent.
And from what I've read of Canada the country is in fact okay with hunting type weapons such as the ones I indicated would be the only weapons
needed to survive. The chances of having some random city-dwellers stumble upon your homestead would be so remote as to not even justify more than a
passing thought in terms of consideration. Military encounters would be equally as unlikely given a small enough camp and a considerable travel from
any major population center, so again no need to be "heavily armed" beyond a few choice pieces for whatever game would supply the protein-portion of
Then lets consider for a moment that one is going to be taking things they need to survive, and twenty guns does you little good when you only
have two hands and a grumbling stomach in the middle of the wilderness. People bugging out to such locations would likely be traveling very light to
make for faster and easier movement, so having this massive weapons cache that you allude to would slow you down significantly, especially if you have
large quantities of ammo for all of the weapons. More useful things that someone would bring along would include hatchets, rope, saws, cooking gear,
simple farming equipment, seeds, and other such supplies to enable one to survive and not just hold some wham-bang shootout that would rival Waco.
Sorry for the rant but I had to get it off my chest, perhaps just a touch of thought next time before tossing out the glaring and highly inaccurate
